MILWAUKEE (AP) - Gov. Scott Walker promises the University of Wisconsin tuition cut he’s proposing will be “significant,” but he’s still not saying how much it will be.

Walker said Wednesday he was saving those details for when he releases the state budget next month.

Walker first announced the tuition cut in the State of the State speech on Tuesday. He says the tuition cut will be paid for with general tax revenues so the university won’t have to pay for it with cuts in other areas.

Some Republican Assembly leaders were lukewarm to the idea, saying they want to wait and see how it fits in with other budget priorities. But Walker says “just because one or two” may be lukewarm doesn’t mean the majority of lawmakers dislike the idea.
